The class of 1953 wrote a song which stated a commonplace but 
extremely important idea. Although this idea has often been incor- 
porated in songs, we feel that the lyrics of our song surpass the average 
in expressing Saint Mary's Spirit. 

We, the editors of the 1953 Stage Coach, adopted this idea because 
we feel that the words, Saint Mary's Spirit, make us conscious of the 
meaning of close associations. In showing the various aspects of life 
at Saint Mary's, we have tried to add in word and picture the in- 
tangible which symbolizes the lingering Saint Mary's Spirit which 
will always live in our hearts.

Unlimited patience, understanding, and school spirit are char- 
acteristics of the man who willingly devotes his time and interests to 
Saint Mary's students. His genuine friendliness extends to each girl, 
and his co-operation to every group. In accordance with this co- 
operative spirit, he attends all school functions, thereby making our 
efforts seem worthwhile. 

It is therefore with immeasurable gratitude and joy that we dedicate 
the 1953 Stage Coach to 



OWENS HAND BROWNE 




Admini&tn, 




RICHARD G. STONE 

President 



A.B., Western Maryland College; Ph.D., The Johns Hopkins University: L.H.D.. Western 
Maryland College. Saint Mary's 1946-. 

He has wholeheartedly supported all our activities and guided us wisely through our years 
at Saint Mary's. We will remember him not only as an excellent president, but also as a helpful 
and understanding friend. 



MARTHA DABNEY JONES 

Her willingness, devotion, interest, 
and understanding have impressed 
upon us the Saint Mary's Spirit. Her 
guidance, encouragement, and in- 
spiration have contributed to our 
achievements and to our discovery of 
a deeper understanding of life. 
Through her memorable and out- 
standing qualities she has placed 
upon us a permanent mark which 
represents the best of Saint Mary's. 





I. HARDING HUGHES 

Our memories of Saint Mary's 
will certainly include Mr. Hughes, 
his devotion, sincerity, and guidance, 
all of which have helped to create 
in us a greater respect for the serious 
side of life. In the classroom, on the 
campus, and in the chapel, he has 
shown us the Christian way of every- 
day living, thereby increasing our 
appreciation of life and our love for 
Saint Mary's.

&fate, %i4t<nef, 



It was September 17, 1951, and the twelve returning 
juniors were on Smedes steps to greet the seventy-seven 
new girls who would be in their class. Lines formed to 
the right and to the left; friendly old girls greeted fright- 
ened new ones. But by some miracle we were all settled 
by the end of the day; although a few were homesick 
that first night, most of us had great fun meeting future 
friends and playing "do-you-know?" 

Orientation week was filled with Iowa State tests, 
picnics, parties, hall skits, the Old Girl-New Girl party, 
confusion, and doubt. At our first breakfast, lipstick 
quickly classified the new girls. And when our councelors 
tried to explain the rules, our expressions confessed our 
lack of understanding. Truly, we were green first-yearers. 

A week after school had opened, we sat with books 
in hand and stared unbelievingly at the long assign- 
ments. However, we soon became accustomed to such 
and welcomed the week ends which brought blind 
dates and girl-break dances. Shortly after our class 
elections in October we began working on our Junior 
Halloween party; we had a delightful time and hope 
that others enjoyed it as much as we did! In November 
we were thrilled to find many petitions passed, thereby 
getting many new privileges. Then came the long- 
awaited Thanksgiving holidays; although we loved 
Saint Mary's, we were anxious to go home for a few 
days. Just three weeks later we watched our. first Christ- 
mas pageant and heard for the first time the seniors' 
beautiful caroling. 

Christmas, however, came to an end, and lacking 
enthusiasm, we returned to Saint Mary's. After a few 
weeks of classes, we faced our first exams which were 
followed by a short rest. 

With second semester came plans for the future. 
The student body began electing Student Government 
officers in February, and then we had our own class 
elections. Thinking back now, we made excellent 
choices, for our officers fulfilled their duties exceedingly 
well. On the sunporch as early as March, a few girls 
got tans while others only came down with the flu. 
Soon we were all working hard on plans and decorations 
for May Day and the Junior-Senior. The six from our 
class in the May Court added immensely to May Day, 
the theme of which was Toyland. That night we enter- 
tained the seniors at the Junior-Senior dance, and in 



recognizing the beauty of Stairway to the Stars, we 
realized that cutting out the many stars was well worth- 
while. It seemed strange that later in the month we 
should take over the seniors' duties; actually, it was 
sad but made us realize that we would soon be seniors 
ourselves. 

After final exams we learned that the kicking post 
and the Old Girl-New Girl party were not the only 
Saint Mary's traditions, for there were the Shake- 
spearean play, the Glee Club Concert, and the dropping 
of the handkerchief at the closing of the school year. 

September 1952 began months of happiness for us as 
seniors. This time we greeted Orientation Week with 
less bewilderment and did our best to make the new- 
girls feel at home. We got a different view of Saint 
Mary's traditions and started out with a peaceful year. 
Some of the most memorable events came at Christmas 
time: for weeks we had been cutting out thousands of 
snowflakes for our Senior Dance, and we had the times 
of our lives that day! Barbara, Singing as the Virgin 
Mary, in the Christmas pageant, added beauty and 
dignity to the service; and then the day we left for home, 
we fifty-seven seniors rose early to sing carols to those 
still sleeping. Despite the unpleasant parts, and there 
were a few in these activities, we had a marvelous time 
and realized what a fine and united class ours was. 
When we returned from Christmas holidays, we stared 
enviously at diamonds and crammed for exams. Getting 
through that senior English was something else! 

During the second semester the Senior Follies de- 
manded time, but it was more fun than work! May 
Day was exceptionally wonderful that year. Queen 
Sarah looked lovely amid the activities of the Old 
Southern Plantation. Afterwards the juniors gave us 
a wonderful dance, for which we appreciated all their 
efforts. 

When the juniors took over their new offices in the 
spring and we stepped down, regretfully we began 
reminiscing and realized that the end had come. Exams, 
another Shakespearean play, another Glee Club Con- 
cert, our own baccalaureate service, and commence- 
ment itself assured us that our days at Saint Mary's 
were over. All, all too soon shouts of joy and tears of 
regret ruled the day, for we had graduated from Saint 
Marv's.

(Pfate, *P*iofi6ecty 



Dear Gene, 

I just got back from Europe and I couldn't wait to write you all about 
it. The boat trip, moonlight nights on the Riviera, gondclas in Venice, 
Maximes, but wait- — I'll just have to start from the beginning. 

The first thing I did was nearly miss my plane to New York. You 
can't tell me we don't live in a fast moving society. The engines began 
to roar the minute I stepped on and we reached an altitude of 5,000 
feet before I got my safety belt fastened. Finally when I was all settled 
I turned around and who do you think I saw? Pat Flowers. I guess she 
forgot her dramamine for she looked rather green and I heard her say 
something to the steward about seme fresh air. Then listening more 
closely, I heard him reply: "No, Miss, I'm sorry, but we just can't raise 
the windows." He adjusted the air conditioner; however, and she be- 
came in high spirits almost immediately. We had a wonderful time 
talking about old times at St. Mary's and she told me that Barbara 
White and Harriet Harris arc her suite-mates at the Barbizon in New 
York. Barbara is an understudy of Lily Pon's besides being a student 
at Julliard. Pat said that Barbara is realty excited because Lily has 
promised her that she can take the place of the flute in her famous duet. 
Harriet and Pat are both working at the Metropolitan and starting 
next week they get their names in lights. 

Our conversation was interrupted by an announcement that we 
were preparing to land in New York. When we landed, Pat and I bade 
one another farewell and I joined the tour at the Statler Hotel. We 
spent a day of shopping ancl a night of visiting fabulous restuarants 
and seeing shows etc. before boarding ship. We ran into Barbara and 
Coach at the Stork Club when we had dinner. Mr. and Mrs. Shearer 
seemed very happy. They were embarking the next morning for Norway 
where Coach's team represented the United States in the Olympics. 
While shopping that morning, I ran into Martha Cope, Jackie Steed, 
and Joyce Sparger who are working at Montaldo's. When I saw them 
a new shipment of clothes had just arrived and they were waiting on 
each other; customers lined up eighteen deep before the manager finally 
corrected the situation. 

The next morning we boarded ship — "The Lineberger," owned 
by Justin Smith. He named it for his loving wife, Doris Ann. The first 
persons I saw were Peggy Mitchiner and Patsy Daniels who were touring 
Europe also for the third time. Patsy deliberately left her pedal pushers 
in a French hotel so she'd have an excuse to return. The first thing we 
did after being assigned to our state rooms was to tour the ship. Pausing 
at the stern to feel the ocean breeze, who should we spy but Paula Smith 
cutting the wake with knife-like motions; she was, we found out later, 
practicing to take her tune in the Olympics after conquering the English 
Channel. Between swallows of the briny she managed to babble. "If 
I can swim through C.A.P.'s English, I can swim the Ocean." Lowering 
fcod and water to her were three ship hostesses, Betty Byrum, Virginia 
Currin, and Lucile Overton. When Virginia wasn't taking her turn 
at watch, she was writing her thesis — the only thing she lacks on her 
Ph.D. 

Suddenly we were distracted when a 120-foot yacht passed us and 
we were able to read the huge lettering on the side "Touring the World- 
Queen of the Mardi-Gras — Miss Nancy Mclver." 

We were then distracted again when we felt rice pelting on our shoul- 
ders and turned to see Donna and Fred rushing away from ship-board 
wedding. Cocky Smith, Donna's only attendant after mysteriously 
catching the bouquet, became so excited that she nipped and fell light 
into Captain George's arms. Coincidence? 

That night at dinner, the floor show opened with a can-can, starring 
Rachel Brooks, Gina Timberlake, Peggy Gwaltney, Lib Gillett, Bebe 
Correll, and featuring mainly Miss Isabella Mebane — world-famous for 
her combination of can-can, and ballet which she performed simul- 
taneously with her rendition of "When the Saints Go Marching In." 
The next number on the program was a modern ballet to the tune of 
"Slaughter on Tenth Avenue," featuring Susie Nicoll and Libby Huffman 
assisted lay Ricardo Montalban and Gene Kelly. The applause was so 
great that we were unable to hear the announcement of the next number 
but I recognized Emilie Adams as she swept into the spotlight and did a 
take-off on "Spellbound." She signed three Hollywood contracts before 
the act was completed. 

England was wonderful and we managed to get an appointment with 
Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham palace. During our chat we were 
served tea by her favorite lady-in-waiting, Ann Carlton. Just as we 
were leaving, in walked the Big Three after a serious conference: Joseph 
Stalin, Winston Churchill, and Nell Eley. Nell won the last election 
by a slight margin over Eisenhower. 

Paris was simply out of this world. At Maximes, Eleanor Lancaster 
doing summer work, waited on our table and the floor show was ex- 
quisite. We saw a dance taken from the latest production of "Red Shoes" 
based on your School of Ballet, Gene. You've really hit the top, kid. 



and was I proud! Before leaving for Rome, we visited a house of famous 
Paris fashions where Paula Whitaker modeled for a minimum of six 
thousand a week. 

Rome was out of this world and while touring the old ruins we saw 
Emily Urquhart, famous architect, constructing a new arena. Her 
complaint was that one of the old ones, after standing for 2,000 years. 
finally collapsed; it couldn't stand the strain of another of Sara Fair's 
Girl-break dances. 

After that, Gene, we sailed for New York and plainly enough, that 
about winds up my trip. I just wish you could have been along. I'll be 
waiting patiently for a detailed description of your trip, too. Don't 
forget to tell me who you saw. 

Love, 

Deedee 

Dear Deedee, 

I was so thrilled to get your letter about your fabulous trip to Europe. 
Sounds like you saw half our Class of '53 while you were over there! 
I think I've seen the other half since I took my trip to South America. 
Guess who my travel agent was? Genevieve James! She and Elizabeth 
Lynn are leading the gayest lives travelling about the continent for a 
huge airline company. Working for the same company are Jo Eaddy 
and Shirley Habel who really look good in their airline hostess uniforms. 
They were both hostessing on my plane and had lots of news about 
Barbara Brown and Ann Penn. They've been working in Rio for a 
coffee bean company. (Ann got her start at S.M.S. drinking instant 
coffee during senior exams.) I went to Mexico first to visit my old room- 
mate, Carolyn Landis. She has been interested in Mexico ever since 
someone sent her a silver belt ior her twentieth birthday. Really, she's 
just the perfect little housewife. Emily Urquhart lives a few acres away 
from Carolyn in a very cozy little house (only twenty-six rooms). Emily 
finds the environment inspiring for the plot of her newest Wild West 
novel. She told me of Cindy Ward's latest successful journal, "Who's 
Who in Hollywood." There's a whole chapter about Frances McNeill, 
Hollywood's most hilarious comedienne. Frances has twelve French 
poodles, each of a different color, to match her Parisian hats. 

I finally left Mexico and set out for Colombia to visit Jeanne Summers, 
South America's good-will ambassadress. She and Haffye Sewell should 
have all our international problems solved soon, because they have a 
solution that never fails — those same big smiles that everybody loved 
at S.M.S. From Colombia I went to Argentina to see Louise Brand and 
Georgia Moore's huge cattle ranch. They always said they'd have thick 
steaks (and the lazy luxurious life that accompanies thick steaks) and 
believe me, they weren't exaggerating. When I was about to leave, who 
should gallop up but Nancy Booth and Peggy Williams? They've been 
living on a dude ranch since they left school. (Any connection to life 
in Holt Hall is purely coincidental.) Seems that the dude ranch fever 
was spreading, because they were expecting Ann Peoples and Sue 
Chamblee to arrive any minute. Ann was coming for a much needed 
rest since she had been hostessing for all the Lambda Chi rush parties. 

I left for Brazil soon after Ann and Sue arrived. We left civilization 
behind and flew over the jungle. Just as we got over the darkest part, 
the engine failed, and we had to land in a grove of coconut tree:;. Just 
when we were about to give up all hope of rescue, a group of natives 
arrived, escorting their sun goddesses, Betsy Gorham and Bet Allen. 
They decided they were through with the quiet, dignified side of life, 
so they left on a jungle caravan soon after graduating from S.M.S. 
Betsy said that her only link with civilization was an occasional letter 
from Frances-Wright Kelly, who is living in the frozen north in an igloo. 
She doesn't seem to mind it, though. With the help of the natives, we 
soon had the plane in flying condition again, and bidding goodby to 
Betsy and Bet, headed toward Rio. I was so tired by that time that I 
decided to shorten my trip and go straight on to Cuba. In the waiting 
room at the airport, I heard a guitar, and some Cubans singing a familar 
tune — at last "Cry Baby, Cry" had achieved international fame! I 
remembered how you used to play for us in the parlor and in assembly. 
Just at that moment who should walk in but Becky Gordon. She and 
Syb Hamer were flying back to New York to preside over a fashion 
review. They are fast becoming the top designers in the nation. We 
promised to meet in the Biltmore the following week (under the clock 
of course), and with that promise I said goodby, hopped on a pogo 
stick, the latest type of transportation in Cuba, and went to my hotel. 
I slept for about a week, I was so exhausted, and left soon after for home. 
Trips are wonderful but I really don't think this one would have been 
worth it if I hadn't seen so many of our old classmates. 

Write me again soon and keep turning out those hit songs! 

Lots of love, 
Gene

We, the Senior class of 1953, being of anemic body and nervous 
mind, with tears in our eyes because we are about to leave the 
haunts of our girlhood, now bequeath the following articles in 
the manner named below. 



Article I 

To Dr. Stone we would like to leave a million dollars for the 
Endowment Fund. Unable to do this, we leave our appreciation 
and a million kisses which, although invaluable, will be hard to 
cash. 

To Miss Jones we leave our gratitude for her sincere interest in 
each one of us. Without her guidance our life at Saint Mary's 
would have been a little empty. 

To Mr. Moore we leave another volume of How To Understand 
Women. We hope that he will study it carefully for his summer 
reading. 

To the rest of the faculty we leave our solemn promise that 
we will spend the summer searching madly for a group of pro- 
spective PHD's which we will recruit for the '53-'54 student body. 

Article II 

I, Bet Allen, leave the faculty house to Miss Blackiston. 

I, Nancy Booth, leave the sweet, co-operative darlings of First 
Holt to their mothers who may be able to control them. I can 
understand the magnitude of their problem. 

I, Louise Brand, bequeath my timid ways to Ellen Ozon. 

I, Rachel Brooks, leave my position on the Honor Council to 
any Junior who likes late hours. 

I, Barbara Brown, leave my psychology textbook to the birds 
who may understand it better than I did. 

I, Donna Bull, leave my sweet, neat and stable roommate, 
Cockie Smith, to anyone who will have her. 

I, Betty Byrum, leave my overflowing energy to Ann Ayers 
who hardly needs it. 

I, Ann Carleton, leave my quiet attentiveness in class to Betty 
Dry. 

I, Barbara Carter, leave my sweet southern drawl to Harriet 
Conger. 

I, Susan Chamblee, will Richmond to the Yankees. 

I, Martha Cope, leave the rest of the State Sigma Pi's to Betty 
Ruth Martin. 

I, Bebe Correll, bequeath my confused love life to Timmy 
Timmons who never seems to have any trouble with Cupid. 

I, Ginger Currin, leave my A's to the Junior class — there are 
enough to go around. 

I, Patsy Daniels, leave my ability to speak French to anyone 
who is not planning to tour France. My French is the home- 
grown variety and might not be understood by a Frenchman 

I, Deedce Davenport, leave my ability to walk the top of 
covered way at night to the rising Seniors who will need something 
of the sort to make life exciting. 

I, Jo Eaddy, leave my complete calmness to the Day Students' 
room. It needs calmness badly. 

I, Sara Fair, leave my wide awake and clear-headed approach 
to life to Lane Harvey. 

I, Pat Flowers, leave my understanding of the world situation 
to Eisenhower. 

I, Lib Gillett, leave my system of asking questions in class to 
anybody who wants to stall for extra time. 

I, Becky Gordon, leave my assembly bell for a liberty bell. 

I, Betsy Gorham, leave my unflustered ways to B-2 Nash. 

I, Peggy Gwaltney, leave all the unattached Duke Pika's to 
the Student Body. Phil's all I want. 

I, Shirley Habel, will the presidency of Sigma Pi Alpha to any 
Junior who has a passing acquaintance with a foreign language. 



I, Syb Hamer, leave what's left of my nervous system to Saint 
Mary's in hopes that some small mouse may be able to use it. 

I, Harriet Harris, return the organ to Mr. Broughton. 

I, Libby Huffman, leave my love for the movies to Linda Ander- 
son who never liked to study, anyway. 

I, Frances-Wright Kelly, leave with a smile, no tears, and a 
thousand Hallelujahs. 

I, Eleanor Lancaster, leav« my gift of gab to Margo Hester. 

I, Carolyn Landis, leave my laugh to Efttie Chonis. 

I, Doris Ann Lineberger, leave my eyes, eye-lashes and all to 
Bobby (Eyes) Coleman. 

I, Elizabeth Lynn, will my charm and poise to Alice Bost. 

I, Isabella Mebane, will my News and Observer route to any 
girl who wants to try and collect money from a bunch of broke 
tight-wads. 

I, Peggy Mitchiner, leave my fabulous tales of Raleigh to 
Jeannette L'zzell who can add them to her fabulous tales of 
Asheville. 

I. Georgia Moore, leave all the campus slips I have left (two 
in number) to next year's counselors. 

I, Nancy Mclver, will my love to the Big Four to Eve Hargrave. 

I, Frances McNeill, leave Second Holt to join Arthur Godfrey 
and his comedy hour. 

I, Susie Nicoll, happily leave Orientation Week, English and 
study hall to next year's vice-president. 

I, Gene Overbeck, leave my one lock of over-hanging hair to 
Frances Perry. 

I, Lucile Overton, will my storybook romance to Sydna Rustin 
who is never seen without a love story magazine. 

I, Ann Penn, leave my undying love for English to Mela Royall. 
I think she may make more A's than I did. 

I, Haffye Sewell, bequeath my quiet, ladylike, tinkling laugh 
and my trusty uke to Blanny Robertson. Carry on Blanche. 

I, Cockie Smith, leave the Biology department at SMS for 
the Chapel Hill Arboretum which offers unlimited opportunity 
for the study of Botany. 

I, Paula Smith, leave Saint Mary's bankrupt after too many 
trips to Dr. Hayward's office. 

I, Joyce Sparger, leave my Hemingway-like writing talents to 
Irene Emory. 

I, Jackie Steed, leave all the day students and their lovely 
room to next year's prexy. Good luck dear child. 

I, Jeanne Summers, bequeath my lovely little pony-tail hair-do 
to Gwcn Grizzard. 

I, Gena Tirnberlakc, leave my quiet, petite way to Glenn 
Lightsey. 

I. Emilie LTrquhart, leave five dozen boxes of atomic aspirin 
to next year's Belles editor who will need everything she can get 
to combat headaches. 

I, Cynthia Ward, bequeath my ability to dance the "Nags Head 
Barefoot Hop" to Baby Rea Elliott who will undoubtedly find a 
good use for it. 

I, Paula Whitaker, leave my Circle torch to the Statue of 
Liberty. 

L Barbara White, leave my ability to carry a tune to Ann 
Gregory who sings "God Save the Queen" so beautifully. 

I, Peggy Williams, bequeath my ability to get into mischief 
to B. G. Athey who already has some talents along that line. 
' I, Joyce Woodard, leave a parting word of advice for the rising 
Seniors. Be sure you room on the Third Holt. 

We, the testators, Adams, Eley and Matheson leave for that 
earthly paradise, that little spot of hollowed soil, that veritable 
L> topia, known in the vulgar tongue as Ahoskie. 

We, the testators, representing the Senior Class, do appoint 
the honest faculty to administer this, our last will and testament, 
on this first day of June, 1953.

Our Toyland was beautiful with Pat Boesser reigning as May Queen. How we enjoyed the beautiful dolls, toy fairies,

Young Carolinians 

MEET THE CHALLENGE! 



Just as they did in 1952, young Carolinians everywhere are proving 
their mettle by planning and working to help their communities 
win the Finer Carolina Contest for '53! 

Building a Finer Carolina is everbody's job — so let's all get on the team! 
Now is your chance to prove again your right to help create your own 
opportunities. Meet this new challenge by pledging your services to your 
local Finer Carolina Committee. Help them now to build finer farms, finer 
towns and a finer future for all of us. 

We, at C. P. & L. Co., are trying to do our part by again 
sponsoring the Finer Carolina Contest for '53. We know 
we can rely on you young people to do your part, in 
making your communities finer places in which to live, 
work and play.
